Community Rowing, a nonprofit rowing club on the Charles River, hired Early Light Media to create a video that illustrates their core mission: making rowing accessible to all. The Charles river splitting Boston and Cambridge is lined with rowing club mansions from Ivy league schools that look more like secret societies. Community Rowing wants to change that image and show the world how fun and beneficial - physically, mentally, and spiritually - this sport can be. The people we met on this shoot were incredibly inspiring and make us want to get our lazy butts on the river!
The New Zealand Rowing team's London Olympics campaign was a huge success claiming five medals including three gold. The achievement stemmed from the hard work each member put in at their Waikato base on Lake Karapiro.
In the late 1800's, the Chattahoochee river had a bright but brief rowing history. Leaders in the Columbus, GA and Phenix City, AL community have started the process to bring rowing back in to the spotlight. Hence the quote from Marie Antoinette, "There is nothing new except what has been forgotten."
This is the first video of a two part series that spotlights the progress and impact of the project.
